Ratings and Reviews

A substantial wee editor. It's taken me a few wee small plays to get the hang of it, its quite simple but having said that I am still learning . I am also quite happy to learn through trial and error . Its very stable I can't remember it having a hissy fit. It does what it says it is going to do in a predictable sort of way. As far as I can see it has everything a home user would want and more . Would be useful with instructional videos you can annotate photos with your App of choice and then add a verbal explanation.

It comes with a comprehensive manual which is easily understood

Almost there

Pinnacle studio is a good advanced video editing program.
It has never crashed at all (lower devices will crash), but it is good if you are making videos just from your iPad camera or a GoPro. The aesthetics look nice at first, but after using it, it looks a little windows XP-ish (the montages and titles look slightly primitive).

It is not simple to use, but it is not tricky either.

Because there are many features, I will put the good, and bad, into a list:

Has a range of titles and montages
Has three tracks of audio
Uploads to apps quickly
Can save an editable project to the cloud
Is partially cloud based
Takes up less space than iMovie
There are lots of transitions

To improve:
Would like support for 4k video
Updated backgrounds to the montages
Support for over 8 megapixel photos
Video filters (like iMovie)

Promising app

Does the basics well enough. This not a full featured video editing app like you would find on Windows, but so far it seems to be a good video editor app for on the go. I'd like to see multiple video tracks and other standard features added in new versions. The interface while mostly intuitive did have me puzzled for a while when trying to trim clips. The help doc helped clear that up though.
